Huh, just noticed that my client currently holds 51839 twts (28 MB). Way more than I expected. 😅 (I’m not following any bots.)
@firstname.lastname@example.org That’s right. 🤔 Those sheets are not exactly A4. And they’re super thin, very little stability – that’s the main problem, I guess.
Playing upright bass is so much fun. 😊 I struggled a lot in the beginning and that shit is still super hard, but it’s getting better every day. 🥳 Been at it for about half a year now …
(Backing track is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn5P88OOJkc with the bass cut out.)
@email@example.com Right, hence a disconnected branch that you’d never interact with. 🤔 But really, no idea, I’ll have to take a closer look at the project first. 👌
Interesting indeed. I’m curious why they didn’t chose a dedicated branch with regular files instead of working with Git objects directly. 🤔 Might be an interesting project for a gloomy weekend.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Sneaky edit. 😏 I had to look up if it could be real. 😅
I was about to throw away some “Gelbe Seiten”, then I remembered this twt. It kind of … works … a bit … nah, it doesn’t.
@email@example.com (I’m not even sure if you can properly read my multiline reply with the old original client. Hmm.)
@firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah, none of the original twtxt clients support the newer stuff that was developed in the context of Yarn.social. That topic in brackets, in particular, is specified in these two documents:
On https://yarn.social/, three clients are listed:
jenny is my own client, so, to be honest, I never gave the other ones a try. Nevertheless, I presume that they all support the aforementioned extensions.
There certainly is a lack of clients, that’s for sure. We could use more of them. :-)
@email@example.com Ohhh, thank you. 🤯 Yeah, now I hear it, too.
To be fair, the ad is a bit longer than just that snippet. 😅 The rest of it wasn’t relevant to my question, though. (It’s messages from Ukrainian students asking for help/support.)
@firstname.lastname@example.org That might be it, yes. 🤔
Too bad. It’ll remain a mystery then. 🥴
@email@example.com Absolutely. 😍 Orange-red light is the best.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh, it was by accident. At first, I thought you found something better. 😅
@email@example.com Heyho, welcome aboard. :-) 🥳
Dear native english speakers, I keep hearing this ad on di.fm:
The what foundation? 🤨 Collotrary? Connotrary? I don’t understand what this dude is saying and this keeps bugging me. 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org Das kann aber ins Auge gehen! (Es ist Freitag … 🤪)
@email@example.com That’s neat. Instead of throwing away all the useless snail mail spam, I’ll make paper planes now. 😁
@firstname.lastname@example.org Die Ziege hat zu viel Fernsehen geguckt. Die hat rechteckige Augen gekriegt.
@email@example.com Huh, that’s interesting! Also didn’t know that Yotta and Zetta only existed since 1991. I leared “Milli, Micro, Nano, Pico, Femto, Atto” at a young age from an old book. But not “Zepto, Yokto”. Never thought about it, now I know why! 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org Yeah, most tech people do. Most non-tech people don’t, hence the drama. 😅
Oh dear. Wifi monitoring is really hard. We have the same problem. We tried to do what he proposes (setting up Raspberry Pis as “wifi probes”, setting up entire laptops, you name it, …), but we hardly gained any insights.
The nasty thing about wifi is that it’s not enough to know whether a device is connected or not. Yes, sure, if all your wifi probes in one area suddenly disconnect, then you have a problem. But how do you test for roaming? How do you test for client behaviour, like “wifi chip $a behaves ever so slightly different than chip $b”? How many probes do you deploy, one per room? That adds up quickly.
At the end of the day, many of our users are dissatisfied with our wifi – and we admins can’t reproduce their problems, because we don’t use the exact same configuration that they do. 😢
(We recently switched to offering Ethernet by default again. That’s much more convenient these days, because many laptops have USB-C: Users connect one cable and get everything – power, monitor, Ethernet, USB hub. Not all workplaces have such a setup, though.)
@email@example.com Do I understand correctly that Yarn uses https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown for rendering twts in the web UI? I’m asking because it irks me that Gopher URLs aren’t converted into links. 😅 There’s probably nothing that Yarn can do because this is done here, right? https://github.com/gomarkdown/markdown/blob/master/parser/parser.go#L724
@firstname.lastname@example.org My main concern would be uploading GPS data to some cloud service. The big question is: Does my Android phone collect such data in the background and then upload it to Google? I don’t know. It’s annoying that I have to think about this. For the moment, I’m just ignoring it. (A dedicated device would not have this problem.) Also, use more Gopher! 😅
@email@example.com I had to think twice what “Bauchaufzüge” means. :-) Nice visualization. “Strecke 2D” vs. “Strecke 3D” is interesting - didn’t expect it to make that much of a difference for such a short path. 🤔 Also, you might be right, basic navigation probably works with the OSM app. The only thing is, it greets me with “unpaid version, 5 downloads” remaining, so, dunno how long it’ll remain usable.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Looks like I got something new to play with: gopher://uninformativ.de/0/phlog/2022-11/2022-11-17–gps-logger.txt (tl;dr: “GPS Logger” does the trick for me, it creates GPX files 🥳)
@email@example.com Ahh, perfect. Yes, that content yields
u4bs34q here, too.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Hm, I think there’s some edit confusion going on.
When my client fetched @email@example.com’s twt, it read like this (I’m posting screenshots here to avoid something parsing this as markdown):
The hash I got for this was
v6kvlma. That’s what’s still stored in my client.
Note the wrong mention. xuu must have edited it, because it now reads like this:
And I get
dmypf5q for that.
lyse replied to
u4bs34q (https://twtxt.net/conv/u4bs34q), but I can’t find out what the original raw content of that twt was. Can someone show me that raw twt line? Then I can check which hash I get. 🙂
The simplest explanation is that xuu edited several times and lyse replied to something other than the current/final twt.
(For that original twt from your test cases (the one the say “Great, last system update broke something …”), I get
bd3yzvq, just like your test suite.)
@firstname.lastname@example.org Right, but lyse’s twt hash was probably generated by his own client, thus probably not affected by the bug, thus … it should be compatible with my hashes. But it’s not. 😅😭 I’ll try to investigate later.
@email@example.com What did you reply to here? This thread is broken for me now. 🥴
@firstname.lastname@example.org OsmAnd, thanks for the hint, I’ll give that a try!
@email@example.com Nice logo indeed. 😁 It was a network outage. Well, the root cause was not in our network, but we had to find ways to avoid the broken path. It would have been a trivial task, if we didn’t need said broken path to reconfigure some routers … Chicken and egg. In the end, someone went into a server room and we instructed him via video chat on what to do. In situations like these, it’s really bad if the more experienced network guys all work from home. 🥴
(Please don’t ask why we have such a single point of failure in the first place. It’s a sad story. 🙄)
@firstname.lastname@example.org Rocket goes whoosh! 😅 I did rewatch it by now. There’s nothing like following it live, though.
Missed the Artemis launch due to a big outage at work.
@email@example.com Ahh, I see. Deceptive zoom. 😏
5km is quite the distance. My walk today was about 3.5km and still took me almost an hour. 😅 I didn’t go very fast, though.
(Reminds me, a GPS tracker would be great. Let’s see what that lovely Google Play Store has … has … has in store for me …)
@firstname.lastname@example.org I wasn’t, am subscribed now. 👌 (And I’m not exactly sure about the difference, either. 🤔)
@email@example.com Wait, does that mean that you live basically ~1km from that mountain? I always thought that’s a long hike of several hours. 😅 No wonder you go there so often.
In any case, nice shot of the moon. 👌
@firstname.lastname@example.org It’s not in “free TV” anymore. You now have to get a special monthly subscription.
@email@example.com Bah. I was hoping for some legitimate reason like “if we try to do that, the guy behind us (Ocon?) might be able to overtake as well”. Oh, well.
(F1 has become pretty expensive here in Germany, so I don’t follow it closely anymore …)
@firstname.lastname@example.org What was the aftermath of that? Do we know now why he didn’t give back the position as instructed? 🤔
@email@example.com You were making a joke, but I’d wager that many people actually respond like that. 😂 “What, it’s like email? Full of spam?!”
It’s a good analogy, though. Email is probably the one and only decentralized system that people are somewhat familiar with. 🤔
@firstname.lastname@example.org Those close-ups of the leaves are really something. 👌 Great lighting overall. 😊
And you have the weirdest trees down there. 39.jpg, what’s going on? 😅
@email@example.com That Verstappen, eh? 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org This one?
I don’t remember anymore (it was 2011) why I didn’t simply use that. 🤔
Spent the better part of the day trying to get urgency hints / terminal bells to work on Wayland. Digging through GTK docs, reading GTK/GDK source code. No success. It’s all still very young.
It works fine with foot, though. Maybe I should just throw away my work and use that …
@email@example.com Yup. 😅 It’s nice to have one place to check for any kind of news.
Hmm, turns out, I really need/want an e-mail-based workflow after all. Newsboat isn’t bad, e-mail just works better for me.
So, instead of patching newsboat, I polished my “feed-to-mail” script, added support for Gopher and Gemini, and finally made it public:
I’ll let it mature for another week or two and then issue a release.
Probably not useful to anybody, but whatever. 🥴
You have to appreciate Drew DeVault’s work, though. The entire Sway team, actually. If it wasn’t for them and their persistence, the situation would probably be much worse, because I have a feeling that nobody would consider the use cases of lightweight desktops at all. And, of course, wlroots wouldn’t exist.
As for redshift, there is this protocol extension:
“Protocol extension” sounds complex, but it basically just means: “Here’s an XML file that describes our thing.” It’s much more formalized than specs like EWMH, which are mostly written in prose. If a compositor decides to implement it, it knows exactly which functions to implement, which arguments they get, and so on.
This is a generic extension that allows you to set a gamma table. So, on Sway, you can use this:
However, scroll down to this table:
This only works on Sway, not GNOME nor KDE.
For GNOME, there is this other fork:
It’s using “GnomeRR”, which appears to be part of “libgnome-desktop”. I couldn’t find official docs for this library (I didn’t search for long, though). Here’s the code: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-desktop/-/tree/master/libgnome-desktop They’re basically doing their own thing, outside of Wayland protocol specs (or I misunderstood). It probably makes sense from their point of view.
